Every fitness goal should include cleaning up the way you eat. When you are trying to improve your health, changing the way you eat is one of the biggest challenges. Most Americans are used to eating highly processed foods on a regular basis and breaking away from that can be difficult.
What does the term clean eating mean?
Well make life easy for your body, if it wasn’t around thousands of years ago, chances are your body has no idea how to break it down and use it for energy.
Keep your diet full of food that your body is designed to eat. Soon as you add processed foods, sugars, chemicals to your diet, your body has no idea how to break them down so just stores them as bodyfat/toxins. When it does try to break them down it can’t so your energy will become depleted and you skin will begin to show the stress from your digestive system and your body will store that food it has no idea how to process as bodyfat.
Food is fuel for your body, so the best thing you can do is switch your thoughts, think of the food you are eating as the petrol you put in car. If you slow down and get tired and grumpy after eating, that there is your body telling you its the wrong foods. After eating you should be motivated, energized and ready to rock and roll!
Start listening to your body and treating your meals like fuel, make it simple for your body and keep your food clean.
